Whose Paradise is It?: Women & Visions of Utopia/Dystopia in Comics and Graphic Novels 

Comics have depicted worlds without men with varying degrees of social commentary about gender politics and the agency of women—from Wonder Woman's Paradise Island, a utopian haven for Amazonian warriors of myth, to Brian K. Vaughn's Y: The Last Man, in which the main character navigates his survival in a newly fashioned matriarchal dystopian world.

The Splendor of the Real: Disrupting The Narrative Agency of Modernism

What is the central narrative agency of Modernism? Is it mind or matter? Or is it neither? Should we anchor Modernism in the elaboration of inwardness (as we may find it in Henry James, Ford Madox Ford, James Joyce)? Or does it lean upon an implicit appeal to the sovereignty of "indifferent" Nature (for instance, in Flaubert, Conrad or Virginia Woolf)? What if modernism were seen to actualize an even more estranged notion of the Real, one that is best captured under the heading of the "Copernican" Real in Alexandre Koyré's definition, later taken over by Jacques Lacan and Jean-Claude Milner?
